Water Treatment

Boiler water must be pure to eliminate build-up in boiler tubes and on turbine blades causing loss of efficiency and potential damage to equipment and personnel. Power plant water treatment facilities feed pure water into a closed loop system where it is recycled indefinitely.

Various instruments are needed for the entire water treatment facility – please refer to the SOR Water Treatment Product Application Notes brochure for specifics of typical instrumentation.

Purified water flows from the treatment plant to the make-up water system, which feeds into the hotwell condenser, if required. This system is intended to replace expected losses, but proper water supply must be maintained.
